November Full Moon 2023
CoSM, Chapel of Sacred Mirrors
46 Deer Hill Rd, Wappingers Falls, NY 12590, USA
Since January 2003, CoSM has held an unbroken chain of Full Moon ceremonies that honor the importance of cosmic alignment, spirituality and creativity. We meet on this monthly high tide of the spirit because the Full Moon is a symbol of the Soul, a luminous circle reflecting a greater light, just as each of us are sacred mirrors of God’s shining presence.
The Full Moon Ceremony, held in the Great Hall, Entheon, hosts inspiring short presentations from wisdom teachers, poets, musicians, spiritual friends of all faiths. Allyson shares poetry on the theme of the month and Alex offers a short sermon on the creative path. The performance ceremony adjourns and guests break for ecstatic music and dancing, socializing, visiting The Mushroom Cafe and the CoSM Shop, gazing into an outdoor bonfire or an indoor fireplace, watching excellent fire-spinning, belly dancing, acrobatics and more. The evening ends with a closing ceremony and, in harmony with the creatures in our world, a group howl at the moon.
